Born in Eastover, SC, The Misfit gained the reputation as one of the best free-stylers and lyricist in the Carolinas. With cutting edge metaphorical depictions of south-eastern life
executed with an uncanny on and off beat precision, the former Student Body President and graduate of Benedict College is potentially rap’s latest oratorical treasure.
A native of North Charleston, SC, Charlie Waters graces tracks with vivid depictions of a “surban” (southern-urban) port-city lifestyle that is well received across the south and the east and west coasts. Guaranteeing note-worthy lyrics with a commanding stage presence and the ability to produce a lyrical flow for any situation, Waters is a powerful artistic force to be reckoned with.
The state of Virginia has bred many artists and producers that have created the sharp, original urban yet rural sound that has and continues to evolve rap music into the “mainstream”. Fat Rat of "Bad Newz", Virginia is no exception. Possessing an original and vigorous flow that illustrates the self-determining spirit of hip-hop, Fat delivers true accounts of southern street life. After re-locating to Hopkins, SC, he immediately became recognized as a gifted emcee in his early teens. Since then, Fat Rat has blazed many free-style emcee battles, claiming microphones across the Carolinas. With a rhyme content that ranges from gangster to spiritual, Fat Rat defines the essence of the ever evolving verbal art called rap.
